    Windows Drive Mapping to Linux Share

    I am relatively new to Linux and having a hard time mapping a drive from a windows xp PC to a Linux Share. I have edited the SMB.conf file to include the share I want to connect to. when I try try map a drive to the Linux share using NET USE M: \\\pairing I get the following error:

    "system error 1326 has occurred.
    Logon filaure: unknown user name or bad password."

    I use a username and password that is valid on the Linux server and has access to the Share. any help on this would be greatley appreciated.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Please post contents of your smb.conf - it is likely that you have not configured the security options for samba properly. Also, do you want to use the Linux password security, or the windows domain authentication?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
